"At the World Cup, he was at the hotel almost all the time. Can you imagine at the hotel for the World Cup, where we were staying in Russia?

"I had Thierry there and Didier here and I had to sit here and take everything in: 'You did this wrong and you did that wrong, but this you did OK…'

"They know I accept it because I really want to have the same career as they had.

"They can be as hard as they want, but I take it because I really want the same thing. Sometimes when I see Nico as well, those three are the guys when I grew up, they were like my everything.

"For me to have them sharing their experience with me, I take everything in. Even if they're trying to knock me off, it's no problem.

"Those guys, they have what I want and they tell me all the time 'you are dangerous, because you are stronger than we were' and I debate about pace with Thierry all the time!

"To be schooled by Thierry, Didier and Nico is the best thing that's happened to me."

Lukaku has already scored three goals in four games for United this season, and continued his fine form with a double against Scotland during the international break.
